What we are studying
This study is for patients that have sustained a thermal (heat) burn that requires medical attention. The burn may have been caused by scalding, direct contact with a flame, fire or a hot object and covers less than 50% of your total body surface area (TBSA). In order to treat the burned area of the skin, treatment required is known as a split thickness skin graft. This needs to be covered with a dressing so that the skin can grow and heal. Researchers want to compare two dressing procedures for covering the skin graft to find out if there is a difference in how the new skin grows and heals.
Participants will receive $50 debit cards for up to 3 follow-up visits made after leaving the hospital
